The Merchant of Venice, Paperback Book


The Merchant of Venice is one of the most outstanding romantic comedies of William Shakespeare.

The play revolves around the legendary characters of Antonio, a rich Italian merchant, Shylock, a rich Jewish man, and Portia, a rich heiress.

When Antonio asks to borrow money from Shylock to help his friend Bassanio, Shylock agrees on the condition that if he is unable to repay it by the date specified, he will have to repay it with a pound of his flesh.

As the play unfolds, Antonio is trapped by Shylock's condition, but the beautiful and intelligent Portia comes to his rescue.
